Maybe this is public knowledge already...I don't know.
Back about 10 years ago my best friend worked for a Christian Book Store. He used to order foreign Bibles for the store and one evening I was thumbing through a Thai Bible on the shelf and was dumbstruck. The endsheets and some of the maps where identical to the NWT except they were in Thai. But, it wasn't the NWT in Thai. It was published by Thailand Bible Society. We decided to contact the Thailand Bible Society and got a reply admitting that yes, the Bibles had been printed for them by the Watchtower Society. It was not the NWT but some version the JWs liked (my guess it must have used some form of the Divine Name in Thai).
I still have the letter from the Thailand Bible Society somewhere (we've moved since then). If there's interest I'll try to find it and post it here. I do not have a copy of that Bible version any longer. I don't know if it's still on the market. I never ascertained if the Society printed a "Watchtower" edition of that printing as well or if all the copies said "Thailand Bible Society" on the title page. My guess is that the Society approached them to get permission to re-print that particular translation and instead of paying royalties worked out a trade: `We'll give you a few thousand copies of that Bible translation in exchange for permission to reprint.' If that was the case the Thailand Bible Society probably made more money on that than they would have otherwise!
I wonder which branch did the printing and binding? Any Bethelites here remember such a project (late 1980's--early 1990's)?
Now, can you imagine the Watchtower Society printing Bibles for the American Bible Society? Can you imagine the brothers in Brooklyn binding Bibles for a Bible Society of Christendom? My friend and were going to write an article about this entitled: "Bibles for Babylon." Never got it written.
